Become a Community Mentor
There are many mentoring opportunities across the Devonport Community and in our Schools, Primary, High & College. The key to “Mentoring” is relationship and provides the opportunity to significantly impact the life of a young person or family through positive relationship.
In the School context, students who have a Mentor have shown a marked increase in schoolwork and socialising with classmates along with a decrease in disruptive behaviour, and inattention in class. This is a happy situation for all concerned the parent, teacher, class, and most importantly the student. The long-term benefits of this are significant. Think of this in terms of the benefits to our community let alone the fact that young people have the opportunity to leave school with purpose, direction and value to their lives.
You can be a part of this significant community impact! What is the time Commitment? Mentors are required to commit to a minimum of 70 minutes per week over a 12 month period, not including school holidays. However Mentors can do more if they wish.
